  1. http://www.kstatesports.com/sports/m-footbl/spec-rel/071511aaa.html He didn’t promise a certain number of wins, but only said that nothing would help the progress of the program more than a stadium full of purple-clad Wildcat fans. This is a perfect blue print of what Coach McCarney is trying to do here. He and Bill have been friends for a very long time. I personally watched K-State go from the worst program in college football to almost playing for a national championship. Fans are a huge part of this process. I had no affiliation to North Texas until November of this year. It

  3. The bookstore has a small section of Nike clothing. They had two Nike caps, green one in the pic, and a black one with the Nike emblem on the back. The t-shirts were gray. I did not see any Nike polos at the bookstore, just some left over Under Armour, Cutter Buck, etc. A clerk told me more of the Nike stuff was coming after they know more about the team's uniforms and sideline apparel.

  4. I was looking at the pdf from a few years ago showing the concept of the new stadium. The concept is pretty close to what we have. I was very interested in the suite concept. In the suite there is a tv and pictures of the UNT football team. What's interesting is the uniform is not what it was during the Dodge era. It has a green helmet, green uniform, white pants. There's little to no piping. In fact, they look old school sort of like ... Alabama. Hmmmm ...

  8. Does it really matter if UTA has a larger enrollment. They don't play football and probably won't for years. They will end up in the same baot as La Tech concerning travel costs except they will get to play TSU-SM and their 8,000 fans and UTSA that hasn't even snapped a ball yet. It's just a Texas version of the Southland, which is a better league than the WAC from top to bottom. Besides, when did football become a favorite sport of Asians?

  9. I'd order one right now. I ordered from MeanGreen and had no issues, for a while they were the only one with the shades of green Texas flag. I always went by and picked it up and they at least carried UA polos when no one else did. I don't really care where I have to buy it from, I'd just like to see game worn apparel and sideline apparel available for purchase. It shouldn't be this hard.

  10. I saw that one and the black one when my son and I went in there this week. I tried it and the black one on. I really wished I had picked up that green one. I also love the plain style cap that is not all tricked up with crap and junk all down the side or on the bill. I wear a plain black one similar to the new Nike cap all over the place and people compliment it quite frequently. It was UNT Bookstore cap as well I purchased back in the Summer of '07. It's been to the top of Kitty Hawk launch site, to the Shuttle Vehicle Assembly Building and various NASA Centers, Civil War Battlefields,

  12. ---Makes no sense... so you are saying if the capital gains tax went back to what it was prior to 2001 (20% instead of 15%) you are expecting people to move out of the USA?? Changing states is no big deal but moving out of the country and changing your citizenship is. Besides most other countries other than third world ones have even higher tax rates. ---Was the economy and the budget really bad in the 90's when the rate was 20% (less than what a lot of working people pay after deductions now) .... NO .. in fact capital gains was the largest reason there was a large surplus prior to 200

  13. Don't forget Runts. That was our name in the big west days by Idaho, NMSU and Aggie fan. I changed my mind 3 times during this thread which is frightening. In the end the winner is: North Texas. Throw in North Texas Mean Green and it has a great ring. Throw the Eagle in as our mascot like the elephant for Alabama and we are good. Let the University use UNT. Most of my friends and prospective students who see my gear call us UNT or a kid the other day said, "I am going to UNT in the fall." So when they think of going to college they think UNT. For sports WE ARE NT or We are North T

  14. Amen. Plus 1 for you, Sir. And, contrary to some other posters, I do not see a Leach hire as a sure thing in selling out the stadium. I think Coach McCarney is a much MUCH better overall selection for UNT than a Leach hire ever would have been. If Leach is so great, why is he still in the broadcast booth? Lots of teams have looked for and hired new head coaches since Tech did the right thing and fired the guy....Maryland, Ohio State, etc., etc., etc.

  16. Leach is a rogue. Hiring a rogue head coach was the last thing that North Texas needed at that point in time - well, actually, at any point in time! All of the perceived benefits of hiring him would not have been worth the angst that would have undoubtably arisen. Winning is important - winning the right way, and with class, is far more important.

  17. Sure, because having no experience at QB, thin lines on both sides of the ball, and losing your best receiver, all while bringing in a new system under a new head coach usually means at least 5-6 wins in the first year of the new coach. Since ULL and Arkansas State should also get to 5 wins (without any excuses) since they are also breaking in a new coach with teams that actually won significantly more than here at UNT for the last 6 years, the SBC is going to be STOUT!!

  18. The only way the WAC becomes a good option is if it adds enough quality members that it can split into eastern and western divisions. That doesn't seen likely. The SBC is a lousy choice but it may be the only choice we have at present. It must be remembered that the best program in the SBC will never be considered anything better than mediocre by the rest of the world. It must be remembered that our university will be judged by the company we keep. In the SBC our 'peer' universities are third-rate athletic programs and 4th-rate academic schools. UNT needs to be doing everything possi

  20. Why I think that we'll have a much better team/record this season: Coach Dan McCarney Retention of Coach Canales, who put a lot of life in the team for its last five games Coach Clint Bowen, improved WKU in one season; bowl seasons under Mangino We can't possibly have as many injuries this year Coach Kent Riddle, who built the special teams at Boise State that made the Broncos special Higher morale and enthusiasm because more will get to play Coach Mike Simmonds, another builder of South Florida Better conditioned and won't have to play until their tongues hang out

  21. That part was laughable, but what's his end game for the attention at this point? Coach a gay team? Do some gay sports broadcasting? Get a free gay pass to the gay club? Find better inroads to the gay coke community*?I feel bad for some of you. Between the Mexicans approaching from the South and the gays marching in newly formed pairs from the North, you have a lot to worry about. Actually, it's probably the last one.

  24. People who push for higher corporate taxes so that the "little guy" doesn't take it in the shorts doesn't understand economics 101 stuff. There is NO SUCH THING as a business tax. Business pass ALL taxes onto consumers. Raise corporate taxes by 10%, and the prices at Wal-Mart go up 10%. Tax the oil companies an extra 25%, and the cost of gas will go up 25%. We should have NO corporate taxes, as they are hidden taxes that consumers and taxpayers pay for anyways. In the end, the END USER, not the business they buy groceries from, pay all of the taxes.

Man, it's just too bad that those folks in the Athletic Dept. are just sitting around not doing anything and not scheduling any events and activities for the Mean green Club members and all the Mean Green fans ( tongue in cheek firmly planted and dripping with sarcasm noted for the few who can't tell). This is great stuff as it signals the "official" start of the new season for this Mean green fan. can't get going soon enough. Really appreciate all the AD folks are doing to provide opportunities for Mean green fans to get together, have some fun and gear up for the new stadium opening and th

  31. Yes I absolutely agree. Most people that want to "raise taxes on the rich" don't really understand what the rich are already paying. But I think its important to realize that washington has to work together to get anything done and right now they are far from doing that. Surprisingly the Democrats seem to support entitlement and welfare/medicaid cuts in return for closing some tax loopholes. Republicans are playing hardball and saying no to anything related to the word tax. We got people like Cantor putting on this show like his heart is breaking raising the debt ceiling yet he raised it under

  39. This was unexpected good news for UTA. I'm somewhat surprised that there is not more talk about bringing football back as part of the deal, but perhaps that is a side issue until the long expected capital campaign finally kicks off. Football has long been viewed as the ultimate carrot that would figure in such a campaign, and I think that is how it will ultimately turn out. UTA has not hit its students with the large athletics fees like the UNT students agreed to, so that is another potential trick they could pull out of the bag once the decision is made to go bigger time. All along, I w

He (your brother)is not all wrong and understands it... The high income people who earn their money with a pay check are paying far more than those whose income is coming from capital gains.... which is is only 15% ... He is likely paying 33%. Twice that rate... I too have relatives making that much... and mostly from a salery. the high income "working class" are the ones really taking it on the chin.... not the Ross Perot, Warren buf

I don't think any one from UNT hates UTA whatsoever...it wasn't their fault that Karl Benson trumped us for not joining his league by adding them to his "on again-off again-on again" conference. I do look for UTA to add football in the next 5 years because of the WAC membership. Fact is for those of us who aren't old-theimer'ed out just yet that we remember how we played many close football games with UTA as I recall. Even in our last game with them during their last season Chuck Curtis's Maverick team gave us all we wanted. I think now would be a good time for them to change mascot na
